Liberty Media, a somewhat behind the scenes American media giant has just purchased the F 1 program from the holding company that owns it. They had bought it from Bernie Ecclestone who had control. Weirdly F 1 is not that popular in the US but multination money is just as good or better. Liberty paid about 4 billion for it plus assumed it;s debt of 3.5 B. Stranger, the holding company kept Bernie to run it and Liberty has ask him to stay on for 2-3 years to transition. He is far older that I and I would not hire me due to age. I have all but quit watching it out of lack of competition , which Mercedes will win this week ? etc. I think it needs a drastic overhaul but retaining Bernie probably means more of the same. Can't really blame Mercedes, they have lots of capitol, smart enough to hire the Brits to design and build their cars which they manage and pay two top drivers 50M each to drive . Ferrari severed their F! team from financial support by the home company, it has to make/raise it's own money and though energy drinks are popular , Red Bull, F 1 is expensive . I have no clue as to an answer or they would hire me This does not sound good for the future of F 1 to my limited imagination. Gaines Any flawed thinking , misconceptions, falsehoods or mispokeness ( Just coined that monstrosity) are purely the product of my over worked brain. I just thought this very odd.
